Physical Education enables pupils to develop confidence and skills in a range of activities such as dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and outdoor and adventurous activities. They work as individuals, in groups and in teams and learn the value of healthy, active lifestyles.
We offer a rich programme of P.E and Sports. In addition to our own well equipped gym and courts, we make use of local sports facilities. We have two specialist sports teachers who introduce the children to a wide-range of sports including Netball, Football, Hockey, Athletics and Gymnastics. In Y4, girls also have regular swimming lessons.
The girls enjoy participating in matches against each other in school inter-house sports competitions. They also have the opportunity to represent the school in matches against other schools. Although our teams are competitive, we teach the children the importance of good sportsmanship and what it mean to be a sports person, focusing on having fun and being your best, as well as recognising the success of your peers and other competitors.
Sport improves physical fitness, stamina, flexibility, agility, strength and balance. We encourage and support each child to reach her own sporting ambition.
